About our home

Our stone cottage in mid-Victorian style has been updated with all modern comforts. The beach is only a few minutes by car. The town of Bridport has an excellent array of vintage and antique shops with restaurants and pubs only a short walk away from the cottage. Saturdays and Wednesday mornings the town come alive with a vibrant street market. Opposite our home is the fabulous Soulshine Cafe which sells Speciality coffee, fresh juices, breakfasts and lunches. They also sell their own artisan bread, independent magazines and deli items.

Recently the area was featured in the Hollywood film Far From the Madding Crowd and the adjacent seaside town of West Bay features in the TV show Broadchurch.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

South Street is a creative and vibrant neighbourhood with a rich history including one of the oldest Markets in Dorset. Lots of interesting shops and cafes around the corner from the Vintage and Antique shopping hub of St Michael's Estate. Market days are Saturday and Wednesday where you can buy anything from a WIFI speaker to retro antiques. Don't forget to sample the local food at the many surrounding farm shops. If you like cider you will be in paradise. Local cider can be found in the Woodman Hotel with many local cider sheds open for free sampling and of course to takeaway.
